Getting it right first time – a guide to onsite industrial wastewater treatment
Discrepancies between designs and the delivery of a project can be avoided by conducting detailed reviews and pilots before building a permanent solution, said Baird. “Put simply, you need to know that what has been designed is going to work in real time, and fits in with the level of training your employees have had.
Asset optimisation – securing wastewater treatment fit for the future
Asset optimisation that can fuse legacy infrastructure with new modular technology creates robust futureproofed treatment plants with the flexibility to adapt to those innovations sitting just beneath the horizon.

Wessex Water achieves 75% saving with enhanced process
Andrew Gulliford, process design manager at Wessex Water said, “Working closely with WPL at the earliest stages of planning for Sherborne water recycling facility meant that together we could completely reimagine the possibilities at this constrained site. Wessex Water customers will benefit from the 75% cost saving on this project and the energy efficiencies achieved will help deliver our sustainability target.”
WPL presents energy-saving wastewater treatment to Welsh Water
WPL submerged biological treatment technology fits more process capacity inside an existing WwTW vessel – steel, concrete and GRP. This not only brings down energy use per m³ treated, it also brings down the site footprint required. With changes and a tightening of discharge standards, in most instances, upgrading an existing works requires no additional tank capacity.
Packaged wastewater treatment group widens focus
The group will now fully include wastewater systems up to 1,000 PE – Convenor Andrew Baird, who is also technical director at WPL, believes the change is the natural progression for the group to expand its capability. He said, “Changes in the market for packaged wastewater treatment systems mean we want to bring new members into the group.
Scottish Water awards wastewater contracts for housing development
Hampshire-based WPL has won three supplier framework contracts for wastewater treatment plant and equipment with public utility Scottish Water.
